Until 2000, it was led by former handball player, Olympian and eminent COC Council member Katica Ileš.

The Commission's Program is raising awareness of the role of women in sports, encouraging research on women in sports, especially from a medical, sociological, educational, economic and social point of view, encouraging the inclusion of women in decision-making processes and public media to cover these and other important issues regarding the work of women in sports.

Matija Ljubek Award

The COC Matija Ljubek Award, which was called the Croatian Olympic Committee Trophy from 1992 to 2000, is the highest COC prize, awarded to individuals as a lifetime achievement award and a token of appreciation and honour for their substantial contribution to sport, and to associations which have contributed to the development of various sports areas, from physical culture and healthcare of children and young people, sports and recreation activities, to the development of a particular sport or sports in general.


The award consists of a bronze portrait sculpture of Matija Ljubek by Croatian sculptor Stipe Sikirica and a certificate. It is presented at the Great Day of Croatian Sport, the ceremony marking the COC's admission to the IOC on 17 January 1992.

IOC Trophy

The IOC Trophy is the highest annual prize of the International Olympic Committee awarded to individuals from National Olympic Committees for outstanding merit in various areas of sport and the Olympic movement. The IOC Trophy is awarded for a different area each year; the first Croatian eminent sports figure received one after the outright recognition of the Croatian Olympic Committee in 1993.

 

Winners of the IOC Trophy

Croatian Olympic Committee’s Fair Play award 

The Croatian Olympic Committee's Fair Play award was established in 2007, on the initiative of the Croatian Fair Play Committee.

The award is presented as recognition of the fair attitude and actions that represent an expression of respect and concern for others.

Highlighting of candidates for the highest Croatian Olympic Committee's award in the field of fair play is permanently open - on the initiative of the Croatian Fair Play Committee and Croatian Olympic Committee that invite the athletes, sports officials, journalists, sports associations, fans of sports and Olympism to be proactively involved in the process on learning about fair play. The nominations can be sent by E-mail, along with a description of the relating event or action, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . In decision-making process on highlighting the examples of fair play, one must keep in mind the principles of the Fair Play Manifesto of the International Fair Play Committee of fair play, which - among other things - states that ".... Fair play means not only adherence to written rules but it describes the right attitudes of male and female athletes and the true spirit of their behavior: showing respect for others and care for their own physical and mental integrity. Every athlete who puts himself in the position of his opponent shows a fair play attitude. Fair play is, above all, a question of personal involvement of an individual.... "/ Fair Play Manifesto, Lausanne, 1998.

Publications

Guides, compilations, brochures and books on Olympians and coaches from the Croatian historical heritage and monographs of the Olympic family – all of this represents a part of the comprehensive and continuous multimedia publishing practices of the Croatian Olympic Committee.
The guides for the Olympic Games, Youth Olympic Games or Mediterranean Games and European Youth Olympic Festival contain information on great sports events involving top Croatian names whose results are today as inspiring as in the history of Croatian sports. There are also the publications that will introduce to broader sports and other public the theory and practice of European funds, the impact of women in sports, international fair play movement and its understanding, protection of athletes against doping today and in the future and other topics, which are an integral part of interdisciplinary activities of the Croatian Olympic Committee.

SN Olympic Corner

 

The Croatian Olympic Committee and Sportske Novosti Croatian sports daily newspaper signed a cooperation agreement and started a common column titled Olympic Corner.

News and stories about Croatian and international sports are published in this column weekly, as well as activities of the Croatian Olympic Committee and its members, especially those, who are not given due media attention in daily newspapers. The first Olympic Corner was published on 5 May 2005.

Prominent Croatian sporting figures, top athletes and coaches and young talented athletes are featured in the Olympic Corner. There have also been stories about county sports associations, which participate in common sports programs, as well as those about current Olympic issues, international activities of the Croatian Olympic Committee, development programs and a number of other topics from the area of sport and Olympism.

Marketing

The Croatian Olympic Committee marketing is based on the fact that, thanks to top achievements of its athletes, Croatian sport is one of the best Croatian products. However, it is also a fact that only excellent work organization, introduction of new expertise and application of scientific achievements can help develop and sustain top sports results. It all requires a stable financial basis of Croatian sport and the Croatian Olympic Committee as the highest national sports body, the obligation of which is to provide the conditions for unhindered development of sport and the Olympic movement in Croatia. In accordance with the COC Marketing Development Strategy adopted in 2007, activities have been undertaken to enhance the income, before all by seeking partners among Croatian and foreign business organizations ready to support projects involving top Croatian athletes.

 

Starting from the fact that most prominent business organizations, which are potentially sponsors of the highest category, have already joined the COC marketing program either as general or gold sponsors, or by joining the marketing Croatian Olympic family. The Croatian Olympic Committee has recently also started turning to smaller companies with less funds for marketing but ready for cooperation. It is encouraging that companies, which have so far not been present in sport in this way, such as those coming from petrochemical industry and some areas of healthcare, are showing interest to support Croatian athletes. Bearing in mind the experiences and excellent results in the organization of the Croatian House at the Olympic Games in Athens, Turin and Beijing, in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Commerce and Croatian Tourist Board, Croatian Telecom and some other organizations, one can see that significant steps were made in economic and sports relations between Croatia and host countries.
